Set-up

Here is a rough ‘base’ set-up for the Schumacher Supastox that will make your car handle just as well as the top drivers at WORM.

Front
Springs: Green
Tyres: 47 shore (kit)
Steering hub positions: Rear
Ride height: 4mm
Droop: Add Maplin washers instead of blue o-rings, or reduce to 2mm all round on GT
Castor: 4mm (1x nut, 1x bar) under MI5 pivot balls
Toe: Neutral, or slight toe out for more turn in

Rear
Springs: Yellow
Spring Position: Outside
Tyres: 35 shore (kit)
Ride height: 4mm
Droop: Add Maplin washers instead of blue o-rings, or reduce to 2mm all round on GT
Damping: 2x Red O-ring on side links

Drive
Pinion: 28-30t
End Bell Timing: 20-30 degrees
Motor Spacer: Add Motor spacer plus 30g to opposite side of pod to balance weight

Differential
Clean the rings and polish on a flat board with wet 800 grit wet & dry paper. Clean again and smear a thin film of good quality silicone grease on the the diff rings facing the spur gear. Rebuild and tighten fully…then back off one full turn and a 1/16th. Your diff is set. It will take a few runs to bed in then may need adjusting to suit.

Bodyshells
Most popular: Ferrari 458 (Type F), Ascari (Type A) or the Protoform McLaren MP4
Colour: Paint them BRIGHT! It makes your car much easier to see on track.

Other
Replace Blue O-rings with Maplins anti-vibration washers (For non-GT car).
Shoe Goo the side walls of your rear tyres to prevent chunking.
